Plushies Unite

If one birthday gift wasn’t enough, guess who surprised me with a visit from the Blizz fairy? Yes, you guessed it. Navi had mentioned that she had another gift for me so I wondered if this was it. I originally suspected that this was the gift that she was talking about in that first late night whisper when she said she wanted to send it early. But no, she meant a virtual gift wrapped in a red ribbon and not something you would need to send via the post office.

As soon as I saw the bag, I knew what it was. In fact, I have a matching one on the filing cabinet with a couple of other stuffed animals collected over the years. Navi admits she was checking my collection very closely to make sure I still didn’t have one so it worked out in the end.

So what do you think? Even as a Horde player, it’s hard not to appreciate the cuteness of a plushie Gryphon Hatchling.

Although the gift wouldn’t be complete without it’s matching in-game companion.

So here we are on a scenic flight past Stormwind.

On a side note, pet battlers may have noticed a look-a-like through pet battles but no equivalent for the wind rider.

Thanks again Navi, you’re a special friend indeed, especially since our friendship has lasted almost 20 years!!

  1. Yay glad that it was still on the wish list! He looks happy with his new trainer and I’m sure he’ll go far!

  2. Aww, I wish there was a look-alike equivalent for the baby wyvern (I have the Wildhammer hatchling). Stonetalon would be perfect to have them!

  3. They are adorable!

    There should be an in-game version of the Horde. The model is even there in Thousand Needles!

    • I remember that old escort quest well. I saw you have the same set too! :)

    • They were both gifts from two special people so I feel very lucky. :)

  4. The spouse has corrected me that the 30th wedding anniversary is, in fact, NOT the Plushie Anniversary.

      • Luckily I have a few more months to figure this out. Should I test the theory that it’s the Chocolate Anniversary?

  5. Grats, how cute are they! I love my wyvern, it means a lot to me since one of my friends got it for me while I was in hospital.

    Maybe I’ll level the little guy up next!
